  • Mariah Carey performs during New Year's Eve 2017 in Times Square

She will once again be closing out the year in Time Square on Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018. She made her entry into the world of independent film with her landmark performance in "WiseGirls" starring alongside Academy Award victor Mira Sorvino and Melora Walters.

Carey first appeared on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in 2005 when she became the very first artist to perform live from Times Square on the program.

The pop diva confirmed that she will return to Times Square in NY to ring in 2018, a year after she was humiliated by technical issues at the annual televised ball-drop.

A visibly upset Carey said she was leaving but then stayed, with her back-up dancers still performing and the producers switching to an audio recording of her voice.

Afterward, the Grammy-winning singer posted a meme of herself on social media with the message "shit happens".

Carey's camp claimed the production company sabotaged her show with technical glitches, including a faulty ear piece.

The pop diva recently rescheduled dates for her Australian tour next year but bumped Perth off the list off performances.

Carey claims that her performance was targeted to get better ratings.

Carey was allegedly the victim of a technical malfunction when she appeared on the big stage in 2016-2017, although her weird off-camera demeanor made others question whether sound was the issue. The show is marking its 46 anniversary, and Seacrest has hosted from Times Square for the past 12 years.

"Last night's situation was beyond my control", she tweeted. Also set to perform on ABC are Camila Cabello, Nick Jonas and Sugarland.

"Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin'?Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018" is produced by dick clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco as co-executive producers.
